2024 : Circuit de l’Abbaye, beyond walking

Once registered to walk the Circuit, you will receive Pilgrim’s Kit by mail. Most of the documentation it contains is in French, but English-speaking pilgrims will find it easy to use nevertheless. The kit contains:
  • A paper map of the Circuit;
  • A passport – for collecting stamps and signatures along the way to create a tangible memory of your experience;
  • A parking ticket that allows you to park your car at the orchard of the Saint-Benoît-du-Lac Abbey, free of charge;
  • A medallion identifying you as a Circuit de l’Abbaye Pilgrim (providing another memento of your journey);
  • The Memphremagog Tourist Guide (a bilingual publication);
  • A directory listing available accommodations along the Circuit, updated for the current season;
  • A sticker proclaiming that you have walked the Circuit de l’Abbaye – to be proudly displayed!

Your registration is valid for the entire current season, leaving you all the flexibility you need to plan your journey. Lodging costs vary between $60 and $200 per night, depending on the experience you are seeking.

The $65 non-refundable registration fee is your contribution to this long-distance walking project. If walking as a couple or in a group, we ask that everyone registers.

Your registration for the Circuit de l’Abbaye is valid only for the current year. Registration fees are non-refundable

You should receive your Pilgrim’s Kit within 10 business days (allow for longer delays outside Canada). At present, it is not possible to register in person.
